School Profile

St. Peter Marian has been proudly educating young men and women since 1976. The school has a rich tradition dating back to 1921 with the founding of St. Peter’s High School and in 1963 Marian High School.

Grade Point Average

Grade Point Average is unweighted and computed on all subjects receiving credit. Academic expectations at St. Peter Marian are set high, in recognition of the rigorous college preparatory curriculum at the school. The school maintains a traditional grading structure that reserves grades of A for true academic excellence.


Due to the current size of the senior class enrollment, we have suspended the practice of providing a rank in class for each senior. For the Class of 2017, a weighted rank will be reported for those students who are in the top 10% of their class.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW)


Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the United States.

STEM education is at the heart of today’s high-tech, high-skill global economy. For America to remain economically competitive, our next generation of leaders — the students of today — must develop the critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills that will help make them the most productive in the world.

St. Peter Marian partnered with this program to challenge our students to develop critical thinking and to sharpen their problem solving skills. Currently, junior high students are enrolled in the Gateway program, which includes Medical Detectives, Design and Modeling (DM) and Automated Robotics. High school courses are covered in Introduction to Engineering, Principles of Engineering, and Civil Engineering.

A National Examination is administered for each course. Additional courses will be introduced, which will allow us to acquire PLTW certification. Our program is affiliated with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), where our teachers receive extensive training and certification.
